If there is no way in the settings then there is really not much else you can do about it.

If you want to make a suggestion to yahoo they have a suggestions board here: Yahoo Suggestions Board


There is no official way to add/remove columns from the reading panes lists. That particular column sorts the mails by read/unread. Your only option is to find a custom script that removes the respective icons or the column entirely.


select Settings-> Message Preview-> No avatars, no preview
